to be like. also tonight the terrifying prospect that one result of the bankruptcy of the city of detroit could be the thousands of potential personal bankruptcies caused by the slashing of retirees' pensions. a full discussion on that is coming up. all that plus i am absolutely geeking out a little bit over what i think is the coolest car ever. the tesla. i will tell you why it's so cool but also why it's so important. >>> but tonight we begin with a man who i believe is the most dangerous politician on the american right. in october 2007 i sat in the media gallery of the united states supreme court and watched the solicitor general of texas argue on behalf of the state that he should have the ability to put to death a mexican national, jose, who had been convicted of raping and murdering two teenage girls in houston. he won that argument and he was executed by texas on august 5th, 2008, despite the objections of the united nations and the international court of justice. at the time, i had no idea who this man arguing on behalf of texas was. but all i could think was holy crap, this guy
be saved. earlier this month, detroit became the latest and greatest american city to file for bankruptcy. an $80 billion federal bailout saved the motor park of motor city. the auto industry from collapsing. right now in 2013 there will be no bailout for detroit itself. michigan governor rick snyder is not asking for one. and the white house is not offering one. it was really surprising republican members of the senate started trying to block a bailout of detroit. this thing that does not exist, no bailout, not only for detroit, but for any american city. no federal funding of any kind for any struggling city anywhere ever. unless they're hit by a natural disaster. because, you know, hurricanes, they have a tendency to hit the sponsor of another measure's home state with regular frequency. the first no bailout no money of any kind amendment did not passion, it was defeated on a close party line vote. its sponsor tweeted, if you weren't worried about the federal government bailing out municipalities like detroit now, you should be. be afraid of this thing that does not exist. so afraid th

has actually quietly just been won. it started right here on the banks of the detroit river in detroit, michigan, and yes, that is a giant nasty pile of something called pet coke. back in may "the new york times" highlighted what they described as a black mound of canadian oil waste rising over detroit. that oil waste is something called petroleum coke, a high sulfur, high carbon waste by-product of canadian oil sands. the petcoke that residents started spotting was put there by a company that owned it, a company call koch carbon, owned by the koch brothers. they started piling up all of this pet coke on banks of the detroit river before preparing to ship it off to other countries to be used as fuel. in addition to be a hideous eye sore, the pile also posed a potential health risk. we've got some video shot last month. look at this. look at that along the banks of the detroit river showing the black dust from the pet coke pile being kicked up in a storm that hit the area and just spreading everywhere. that black dust started blowing into nearby homes in detroit coming right through the
attack on a flight that was going from amsterdam to detroit, and a president was vacationing in hawaii and it took him days to make an announcement about that? >> hang on. one at a time. listen, please, christie, we have to go one at a time, our audience wants to hear from both of you. let me go to the president today in phoenix, we repeated phony scandals, while we play this, think of four dead americans in benghazi, people that were targeted by the irs because of their political views, and ask you -- think of brian terry who lost his life. are these really phony scandals? here's the president again. >> unfortunately for the last year or so, we've had an endless parade of distractions and political posturing and phony scandals that shift focus away from what do we need to do to shore up middle class families and create ladders of opportunities for folks to get in the middle class. and as washington heads toward another budget debate, the stakes could not be higher. >> is that a phony scandal for those four people, five people, if you include brian terry? >> the majority of americans t

are incorrect. next up, true or false, the city of detroit is holding an important election tomorrow for the top leadership of that great american city. is that true or is that false? that is false. the city of detroit is holding an election tomorrow but it is pointless because there is no democracy in detroit anymore. the guy on the left of your screen here is dave bing who is the mayor of detroit elected by the people in 2009. he's not running again for the position and i think i know why. the guy on the right is kevin ohr, detroit's emergency manager, he was never elected to his position, he was put in place by michigan's governor. he makes 75% more than the governor makes. whatever he wants, detroit does because he is the emergency manager not the elected leader and emergency managers get to run that city now, not the people who get elected. so tomorrow we'll go through the motions, more than a than a doz will be running in a primary to become detroit's next powerless figurehead mayor who can't do anything. the top two finishers regardless of party will move on to the general election in nov

unfortunately. >>> a new showdown over detroit's request for bankruptcy protection. unions and retirees are challenging the math suggesting that the city's financial position is not as bad as claimed. detroit's emergency manager saying that the city has at least $18 billion in liabilities and doesn't have enough revenue to pay them off. retirees and unions fear they could lose their pensions or have to pay more for health care. if the bankruptcy goes through, the hearing is set for october. martha: well there are almost 50 unions in the city of detroit and detroit is said to have long-term liabilities and debt of at least $18 billion. that includes $3.5 billion of unfunded pensions in the city as well as $5.7 billion in unfunded health benefits. the rest is owed to bondholders and other unsecured creditors. detroit's population is plummeting. since 2000, the city has lost more than 55 residents every single day. all of that adds up to a huge amount of problem in bankruptcy that detroit is seeing and a lesson for many other american cities as well. we're just getting started. we have a b
